Oeste came off the blocking matts last week but the weather has been absolute crap–like 3 inches of rain in two days crap. Today it finally got nice and I was able to get out and get some good picture taken.
It’s extremely long. It’s easily much taller than me and I’m 5’8″. If you are a very short person you might want to make it a little smaller… I don’t know how you would go about downsizing it though, it would probably take a lot of math.
It takes me a minute or two to put this on because it’s so long and I’m weirdly anal about getting the points to lay where I want them. It’s worth it though because it looks pretty darn cute all wrapped up around my neck.
The yarn is the luscious Malabrigo Sock. I’ve had some in my stash for quite a while but never used it. The shawl club was the perfect opportunity to finally give it a try. The colors were perfect together–I love Stephen West’s color sense–and the pattern was unique and fun to try. There are a million ends to weave in though. You’ve been warned.
